bareMinerals The Instant Attraction Palette and Chase Your Dreams Marvelous Moxie Lipstick

Bare Minerals

I am really into neutral warm shades for eyes and lips this season and bareMinerals The Instant Attraction Palette ($30) and the Marvelous Moxie Chase Your Dreams Lipstick ($18) from the Lovescape Spring 2016 Collection are exactly the colors I want.                              pr samples

Both come in pretty gold packaging. The lipstick is in a special edition gold tube with a push-button release, which means this lipstick will not lose its top in your purse, thank goodness. The eyeshadow palette has four shadows:

Whirlwind – matte light peach

Happenstance – shimmery yellow gold

Anticipation – golden rose

Meant to Be – shimmering espresso

I think these shades are stunning, particularly together – they just look like a summer sunset, don’t they?? They have a rather powdery texture and the shimmery shades definitely have fallout. To lessen that pat them on, don’t sweep them onto your eyes. If you are going to be in the sun, know that you will probably have sparkle on your face, not just your eyes.

That said, the eyeshadows are so pretty I don’t mind dealing with a bit of fallout. They are very nicely pigmented and blend well. I love that bareMinerals gave a great diagram for that ‘sunset’ look:

The shades are stunning together and make a perfect palette for summer. For lips, I am loving the Chase Your Dreams shade of Marvelous Moxie Lipstick.

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Chase Your Dreams is a warm, brown-toned rose. This is a quintessential summer shade that works for day or night. I always love the texture and wear of the Marvelous Moxie lippies – buttery smooth, long-wearing full coverage.

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick has a slight minty taste at first, but that goes away quickly. It leaves lips hydrated with a nice slip thanks to the ‘moisture-loaded hydrating complex that helps to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness.‘ In addition, encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex work hard as antioxidant defense.

This summer, don’t ignore The Instant Attraction and be sure to Chase Your DreamsbareMinerals will make it a season to remember!  – Lisa

    What beautiful shades!

  3. Never Say Die Beauty | 11th Jul 16

    Beautiful shadow and lippie shades! Now you’ve got me worried about the Marvelous Moxie lipstick. I own two of them and they don’t have a minty taste or peppermint oil in the formula. I hope they didn’t reformulate the whole lipstick line and add peppermint oil that’s a no go for me!

  4. Erika | 11th Jul 16

    Oh. My gosh! Those shades are my kind of thing and the packaging is so pretty.

  5. Mai | 11th Jul 16

    All of the shade are so me. I’m like you…if the colors and the product is good, then a little fallout doesn’t bother me.

  10. Bailey | 12th Jul 16

    I have been all about the shimmery and metallic shadows lately. Can’t get enough. And the Marvelous Moxie lipsticks are one of my favorite moisturizing formulas. What a great set!
